It does not seem that long ago, but here we are, once more enjoying all the wonders of Christmas – cool sweater-weather, carolers going from house to house at dusk to spread some Christmas cheer, church bells calling everyone for “Simbang Gabi” (at dawn), and the welcome warmth of tsokolate de batirol and puto bumbong after mass. There’s excitement at the thought of all the amazing gifts that you’ll be getting FOR friends and family. Yes, that’s the correct (and need I say better) preposition to use instead of FROM. After all, the true essence of Christmas isn’t in receiving but giving.
In O. Henry’s classic tale, The Gift of the Magi, the act of giving becomes more meaningful, and a most profound love shines through because of selflessness. This Christmas, we at Party Doll Manila, wishes everyone the gift of true and selfless love, and may the joy and peace that come with it fill every home to overflowing!
A Merry Christmas to all!
